This is a 1935 wood bodied National Trojan Resonator guitar. It has a roundneck and 14 frets to the body. The Trojan was a popular model in the 1930's and is a single cone biscuit bridge resonator perfectly suited for a variety of musical styles. Wood bodied Nationals have seen a resurgence with the current NRP (National Resophonic) manufacturing several models. Wood bodied National offer a 'warmer' , less brash tone than the steel or brass single cone models making it well suited for everything from Piedmont Style or Swing to Delta Blues.
This 1935 Trojan was fully restored in 2006 by Larry Stevens, formerly of Elderly Instruments. The restoration, complete with new frets, fingerboard, neck reset, saddle and 1/4' X 3/8' graphite neck re-enforcement guarantees 'AS NEW' playablilty with a vintage tone and vibe. Many vintage Nationals can possess any number of problems. This instrument has had the full treatment by one of the best Luthiers working on Nationals today. It plays as well, if not better than it did in 1935.
The Trojan comes with original chipboard case. The body has minor blemishes and worn patina, as would be expected of a seventy year old instrument. All other appointments other than the aforementioned restoration are 100% Original. This instrument is crack free with original tuners, cone, biscuit, tailpiece and decal. Only honest wear and necessary repairs.
This instrument is 'AS IS' with no returns. PLEASE ASK FOR AS MUCH DOCUMENTATION AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE. I am reachable every day and do not mind discussing every detail of my instruments. However, I've experienced too man
